Odd collection and #56 The Golden Rule

The Beatles (also known as the White Album) is (for me) a great and varied double record, I have it in the 'white vinyl' version and was intrigued to learn about this Artist/collectors perspective  on making a collection of multiple copies of the vinyl version.

 #56 The Golden Rule

Many believe that part of the reason that we are able to live as well in  Society as we do is that all religions subscribe to  versions of the Golden Rule, this is  rules such as  that in Christianity which is  exemplified by  Love Your Neighbour as  Yourself or  Do as you would be done by  in Marxism we can see a replacement version of Christian The golden rule
from each according to his or her ability; to each according to his or her need.
Other creeds say things like:

"One should never do that to another which one regards as injurious to one’s own self." (Hinduism)

“...and you should forgive And overlook: Do you not like God to forgive you? And Allah is The Merciful Forgiving.” (Islam)

and the rather tidy

"What you do not wish for yourself, do not do to others." (Confucianism)
For others and to realise (perhaps) that religion is not necessarily a bad thing take a look at this poster
